Got some good info from someone at work yesterday, that tells you when and where you can see the ISS pass over smile

Last night, it was at dusk (18:02), passing pretty much East to West I saw it pass over smile

It needs to be a clear sky - its pretty much the brightest thing up there - looks like a very bright star, moves at about the same speed as a high flying aeroplane (The ISS has no flashing lights though) and from starting to see it, to it dissappearing, takes about 2-3 mins.

With an optical aid of 10X magnification, you should also be able to make out a bit more detail on it - ie the solar panels, and maybe even the shuttle which is docked at the moment smile

Link to times and place in the sky

Also remeber the viewing times - these are critical.

It is litterally only visable for a few mins...
